Selangor Journal : MB: Entrepreneurs should wait no more, employ digitalisation now
AMPANG, Sept 20: The Selangor Menteri Besar is urging entrepreneurs to start embarking on the digital wave for their businesses and advised that they should not wait any longer to do so.
Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the rapid advancement in technological frontiers has required entrepreneurs to become more proactive in strategising their marketing plans to stay competitive in business.
“Entrepreneurs must change their mindset and realise that the future has arrived. If we don’t act now we will be left behind and if we are not prepared, we will miss out on a lot of things.
“We are actually heading towards smart living with elements that include e-commerce or online business which is the new lifestyle that everyone must now learn to accept,” he said.
Amirudin was speaking during the launch of the third series of the Selangor Digital Entrepreneur Roadshow 2020, held at the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) here yesterday.
Amirudin explained that virtual business has the capability to expand an entrepreneur’s potential and propel them to compete in local and international markets.
“This is evident through the Selangor E-Bazaar Raya with Shopee, which ran from May until July this year. We have managed to make RM341 million in revenue and have attracted 8,400 businesses to the platform. Of that, 6,400 were new to online business,” he added.
